Welcome to our plot!

I'm Hazel, and in Nov 2006 my friend Jane and I took on a half plot at Hill Allotments, Sutton Coldfield - we want the satisfaction of growing and eating our own fruit and veg, and to improve our diet (and fitness!).

This is the story of what happened next...........

Did Spring Spring...?

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words – which is as good a way as any as introducing a catch up to the blog…

So we’ll look at the month of April first – before disappearing off on holiday towards the end of the month, I sowed some KOHL RABI (blusta & delikatess white) in small pots at home along with some FRENCH BEANS (warwick & black turtle) & a couple of SQUASH seeds (buttercup, pomme d’or, red kuri, redmolo & Thelma saunders – all courtesy of a very kind member of the GYO grapevine form the Netherlands).

The CELERY (golden self blanching 3) seeds sprouted in their pots along with the PEAS (robinson) from the Heritage Seed Library, & the latest sowings of SPINACH (samish f1), SWISS CHARD (bright lights) & LETTUCE (webbs wonderful).

Although I had time to plant out the ONION (brunswick), some SPINACH (samish f1), LETTUCE (little gem), PEAS (pilot) & SPRING ONIONS (ishikura) & to prepare the beds for further planting out, everything remains pretty bare & just waiting for Spring….
